Brief thoughts on Astrology and Numerology: legitimate or hoax?

 Astrology and Numerology

I first got into researching these two subjects out of pure curiosity. I wanted to know if there was more to them than what I just seeing with my eyes. However, I didn’t know what I was truly getting into until I ended up creating this blog. This blog is what caused me to turn my curiosity into something more…a passion.

Astrology

First of all, Astrology has no scientific evidence or definite proof that it is real which already makes most people want to dismiss it at first glance. Those who sense any amount of truth in the study are not basing their belief on hard facts or logic, they are basing it on faith and intuition.

I personally believe that there is a lot more truth to this study than people realize. At the surface it is just zodiac signs and horoscopes and that’s what most people put their judgement towards. The world has been bending the study to be something that it’s not and at this point it seems almost impossible to reverse the current ‘world view’ of the subject. Without a way to prove its legitimacy, the majority of the world will continue to view it as nothing more than psycho mumbo jumbo and witchcraft.

I however do not doubt its usefulness will continue to study and utilize it just like I have been.

Numerology

Same as Astrology, Numerology has no scientific evidence and will more than likely never have any during our time period. This study is much less popular than Astrology too and its premise is based on numbers which is already hard to believe. However, Numerology and Astrology share a connection as if they came from the exact same source.

Numerology in my opinion is extremely helpful for those who choose to give it a chance.

My personal benefit from utilizing it has been a life changing experience. Instead of doing what everyone else wanted me to do with my life it reminded me of what I am actually skilled at and enjoy putting my time towards.

My life path is 3 , the skills of creation and artistry.

My Life destiny is 8, the path of leadership and wealth.

My soul number is 5, the inner need for freedom and rebellion.

If you have even the slightest interest in Numerology then you definitely want to check out your 3 main numbers below.

  • Life Path – this is will you show what you really excel at in life and what skills and talents you should focus on to make your life a rewarding one.
  • Life Destiny – this and your life path go hand and hand. This will show you the path that you should take in your life and the things you need to accomplish to make you feel fulfilled and satisfied.
  • Soul Number – this will show you your most hidden inner desires that no one knows about (maybe not even yourself). It can show you what you truly value and need to motivate you through life.

For those seeking a full overview of Numerology – including the way it works, its benefits and uses, and origin. This was the first book I read when I was just getting started researching the subject and I highly recommend it.

This book on Astrology really opened my eyes to the depth of the study. There truly is much more to it than just horoscopes and zodiac signs. For people seeking to seriously understand how Astrology works and its uses then I recommend the book below.

The Ninth Sign of the Zodiac – Sagittarius – November 22 – December 21

Sagittarius born are in a life long quest filled with exploration and the accumulation of wisdom; curiosity, honesty, and strength are traits that describe them all too well.

Ruled by the planet Jupiter, they seek expansion, knowledge, and wealth in this lifetime. Jupiter also endows Sagittarius with a life full of luck and optimism. Being a mutable sign, these people are always changing and transforming in hopes of finding their true purpose in this world. They are outspoken and truthful, but will listen to the opinions of others in hopes of furthering their own growth and knowledge.

These people are goal oriented in their living; when a Sagittarius sets their sights on something they want then they will use every fiber in their being to obtain it. Like an archer they steady their aim, prep their arrow, and release the shot with enough precision and mastery to kill. Sagittarius wield the element of fire and are endowed with strength, determination, and perseverance. These people need the freedom to chase their goals and live how they like or they will feel unhappy and restricted.

Sagittarius are independent by nature and have a strong need to satisfy their curiosity. Their adventurous spirit is the source of their wisdom because they tend to learn best from first hand experience. They are truth seekers to the core and are always searching for meaning in their life. Being the open-minded free spirits that they are, Sagittarius are almost always attracted to the spiritual world at some point in their lives and their faith is likely the strongest out of the all of the Zodiac.

They are very straightforward in both their words and the way they choose to live life. Their honesty is something to admire, however, they have the tendency to say what needs to be said, regardless of how the other person will take it.  Most likely they have the other person’s best interest in mind from the start but they can be a little too blunt for the own good at times. This may rub some people the wrong way but it is a trait that makes a Sagittarius a Sagittarius.

Sagittarius as friends are always a pleasure to have around because of their outgoing and optimistic nature. These people can get bored easily and love to fill their lives with new and exciting ventures. They love to travel and are searching for like minded companions to spend their time with. Generosity is a common trait they possess and they will always make time to help a friend in need. Relationships are no different, although it can be extremely hard to tie a Sagittarius down and get them to commit to something. However, when they do finally settle down then they will not take their commitments lightly and will love their partner wholeheartedly.


Have you seen your astrological birth chart before? Your zodiac sign only scratches the surface of your true inner world.

Gotta work

This world is not easy, don’t be a victim and don’t be lazy

The end goal is there but the path may be a little hazy

The population will conform, but you? You are not the norm

Break free, don’t look back, smile bright and wake in the morn

Work just don’t mourn, live your life and avoid all the damn lies

The mist will always clear, just be careful lest somebody dies.

 

The ISTP Personality Type

 

ISTPISTPs are known for being down to earth, practical, and laid back. Rather than hearing a long winded explanation, they would much rather take action in the present and get results now.

You can always rely on an ISTP to fix something, create a solution, or troubleshoot a problem. These people generate solutions and implement them at an incredibly fast pace. Their analytical skills are top notch and when they are able to get their hands on something that catches their eye, they make sure to explore it all the way down to its core. Their dominant function is Introverted Thinking (Ti), and it is the source of their analytical prowess and troubleshooting abilities. With Ti, ISTPs are able to get to the root of the problem and make sense of it logically. They like to maintain their objectivity and let their rational self take the lead at all times; ISTPs and emotions do not mix well.

ISTPs live in the moment and like to take action in the present. Daily routines and boring methods are the best way to kill an ISTP on the inside. These people will work hard at something that actually interests them and like to find their own unique path in life. ISTPs have a risk taking air about them due to their auxiliary function: Extraverted Sensing (Se).  Se relies on the 5 senses – sight, sound, touch, smell, and taste – and is the main source of their action oriented tendencies. They can even be led into dangerous career paths because living a life like everyone else would simply be too boring for these people.  They are risk takers and thrive on action, however, keep in mind that these people are still introverts.

The dominant function of the ISTP is an introverted one and ISTPs need ample down time to recharge their batteries every now and then. ISTPs take in information from the world with their Se, then make sense of it and analyze the data with their Ti. These people are interested in the world around them and their curiosity knows no bounds. With the combination of Ti + Se, ISTPs perceive the outside world, analyze it, and then get to the core truth about what they have perceived. This combination is why ISTPs are so great at figuring out how things work.  From there they can figure out how to improve or make tweaks to the current system.

Fields such as engineering where ISTPs can use their hands and work on something directly are places where they excel. They can absorb and memorize concrete facts with ease and also do well in fields such as accounting or mathematics. Their communication and social skills are areas where they may have trouble with, and they often have a hard time opening up to people. ISTPs will express themselves in as few words as they can but will make sure they get their point across. Even non verbal forms of expression can be their option of choice. A strong asset that ISTPs possess is their level headedness in high pressure situations; where others may get overwhelmed by their emotions, ISTPs will take their time and get the job done right.

Their tertiary function is Introverted Intuition (Ni), and their intuition is only there to support them in this lifetime. ISTPs get these feelings that they know they are right about something, even without actually going through the process and reaching the conclusion themselves. It gives them a quick glimpse of the future per se, and when properly developed it can become a very valuable asset in their toolbox. Ti + Se is the main combo for ISTPs, but Ni is the glue that holds everything together. Ni can also help when trying to piece together clues or hints, or interpret the hidden intentions of surrounding people. It can even make ISTPs suspicious of others and even avoidant of social interaction as a whole. Dreaded comfort zones and procrastination are also demons that these people will have no choice but to defeat.

Their inferior function is Extraverted Feeling (Fe), meaning that when it comes to sensing how are others are feeling they often have a tough time. Feelings in general are not the strong point of those with the ISTP personality type. They may even completely dismiss their own feelings and view it as a sign of weakness. As ISTPs develop their Fe they will become more and more comfortable with themselves and their own emotions, as well as become more tolerant of the emotional outbursts of others. Even from a young age Fe will show it’s rear end but it may not be as noticeable as it would be for other types.


The functions:

Dominant function: Introverted Thinking (Ti)

Auxiliary function: Extraverted Sensing (Se)

Tertiary function: Introverted Intuition (Ni)

Inferior function: Extraverted Feeling (Fe)
